Dance Holidays on Fred Olsen Cruise Line’s Balmoral

Fred Olsen Lines – Balmoral

Balmoral docked in Belfast

Welcome Aboard the Balmoral

Award-winning family-run Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines operates four stylish, more intimate ships – Balmoral, Braemar, Boudicca and Black Watch. Being on a smaller scale, the ships suit group travel particularly well as, whatever the size of party, Fred. Olsen’s on board staff can provide a friendly, personal service – so fellow dancers can cruise in confidence knowing that every aspect of their holiday has been taken care of!

The 1,350-guest ship Balmoral is the largest of Fred Olsen’s fleet but still retains the warm and sociable atmosphere found across the fleet. Despite her size, she can access many ports larger cruise ships cannot, taking guests ‘closer’ to their destination so that they can spend more ashore. Balmoral is still small enough to navigate narrow waterways, such as the Kiel Canal, providing guests with some fantastic scenic cruising opportunities missed when sailing on larger vessels.

Balmoral takes her name from the Scottish residence of the British Royal Family and features 710 well-appointed rooms and suites. The Scottish theme runs throughout the ship, with the names of all fine-dining restaurants being influenced by the Highlands: the Ballindalloch, Avon and Spey. Whichever restaurant guests choose to dine in, they will be in for a treat as Fred. Olsen’s expert chefs produce tantalising menus, ensuring no two days are the same.

Guests will also have plenty of time to relax and socialise on board, as Balmoral has a host of lounges and bars. There is ample space for group travellers to practice and show off their dance skills – another advantage of sharing the experience with hundreds – and not thousands – of other guests. In addition, guests can expect a fine array of entertainment throughout the day, ensuring they can do as much or as little with their time on board!!
